If you like this person's taste, follow him!
See it if you enjoy family drama in the same vein as The Humans and August: Osage County. Well executed high drama. Could use an editing.
Don't see it if you can't sit for a long stretch. Clocked in at almost 3:00 the night I saw it.
See it if you enjoy suffering. One low after another. No break in emotional continuity. Just down, down, down.
Don't see it if you need to do laundry. That would be time better spent.
See it if you want to see some of the best acting of the season. Fully realized characters. Sparkling script. Wonderful.
Don't see it if you're uncomfortable with dark comedy or if your mother tormented you when you were young.
See it if ...you want a modern take on relationships, heartache, yearning and friendship.
Don't see it if ...you don't like chick lit novels.
See it if What a cast! Give me a break. Sarah Steele masterful, as always. Deserves all the awards. Stephen Karam is can write like nobody's business.
Don't see it if It's heavy drama. If you want a night of cotton candy (nothing wrong with that) you're better off at 'Holiday Inn.'
See it if Nice to see some new material instead of yet another revival. Snappy, clever lyrics. Something for the kids that's NOT Disney.
Don't see it if Stylistically, it's a big, traditional Broadway musical/dance extravaganza. If that's not your thing, steer clear.
See it if Big Disney exposition. A visual feast. Still works after all these years.
Don't see it if Forgettable score. Couldn't remember one song :30 minutes afterwards.
See it if It's as good as everyone says it is. A compelling, listenable score. A wee bit draggy in the second act. Easily forgiven.
Don't see it if The cost is preposterous. Don't see it if you don't want to feed the beast. They'll only be encouraged.
See it if See if you love rhythm and blues.
Don't see it if I was put off by their pretending to play the instruments. It was as bad as lip-synching. The historical facts didn't roll in until the end.
See it if And evening of superb acting and writing. A heartfelt performance with a believable story arc. Made better by the small venue.
Don't see it if Don't see it if you're not in the mood for heavy drama. There are moments of deep sadness and remorse.
See it if See it if you want a night of non-traditional theater. It's an unusual staging and a clever conceit.
Don't see it if It's in extraordinarily slow-moving play. I don't agree with all the accolades it's gotten. It's too long by about 30 minutes.
See it if you like experimental theater. Lots of draggy spots but a few flashes of brilliance. Appreciate the effort.
Don't see it if you enjoy traditional theater whereby you sit in a chair and and there's a linear plot.
See it if you like Shakespearean period pieces. Funny with very, very fine performances.

See it if you like Russian literature and get a kick out of seeing Cate chew up a stage. And who doesn't?
Don't see it if you're short of time. Could use an editing. Uneven pacing.
See it if An absorbing, heart-breaking evening. Innovative staging that WORKS. David Oyelowo in one of the best performances I've seen in ages.
Don't see it if 3:10 minutes long with one intermission. That's too much for a lot of folks, even if it's great theater. Bench seating doesn't help.
See it if ...you want to take the kids to something that's not the same old fare. A little dark and foreboding, which is okay with me.
Don't see it if Lots of kids on stage. Better be at peace with that or you're not gong to like it.

Don't see it if Don't see it if you don't like going to the theater.
See it if See if you have kids who are nagging you to take them to see Aladdin.
Don't see it if The Disney formula is feeling dated. The songs all sound the same. Expensive.

Don't see it if Don't see it if Russian plays aren't your thing.
See it if See it if you want an evening of laid-back fun. Lots of interaction with the audience which you can participate in or sit back and enjoy.
Don't see it if ...you're looking for an evening of deep, serious theater. It doesn't pretend to be anything other than light fun. Hard-working cast.
